Black is true black length could be 1 inch longer, but I like them I am going to the green and maybe sand color.
Light & Comfy
I bought the sandshell in a small. Were just a little too long. I folded the hem over & pressed and stitched. Now the length is perfect. They are perfect for summer. Would love another pair.Was afraid they might be too thin a material but they are not.

Indigo Blue is not like what was showing in the catalog, its like a washed out blue. The inseam is not a true 32 inches. I am 5'10 an 182 pounds I wear 32 inseam yours is like 31.other than the large was good for me I had to return the XL far too big.
rise too short
If you are genuinely petite, these are lovely. I've reordered the misses size and just hope the rise is a lot closer to my waist. I am 5'6" but my leg length is 30". I didn't want to have to hem the pants, so I ordered the petite which was a mistake. The leg length was just right, but the rise was very, very low which is the only reason I give it two stars. The fabric is nice and I like that they are machine washable.
These are really nice summer pants. Ran a tad small (because of the wide legs and draw string waist, expected a bit more fullness in the hip area). But, my normal size did fit and I'm sure I will enjoy these (haven't worn them yet)...I ordered the white and the blue. Material is nice...lightweight, but substantial enough. I would recommend these and saving a few bucks on the sale price was a nice perk.
Perfect summer pants
These are absolutely perfect summer pants-- light weight and comfortable without being flimsy or see through. They're drawstring but not bulky around the waist and the material doesn't wrinkle. Love them. Bought in three colors.
Pro: The pants fit nicely. The color is good. Con: I think the material is too thin. I haven't washed them yet, so I can't help there.

Excellent fit and quality
I was looking for pants just like this and I was not disappointed by these. I wear a size 14 and the large was a perfect fit. I am 5'6" and the length was great as well. The quality is so good that they can even be dressed up easily. I am so pleased with the black and blue pairs I purchased that I may just get a khaki one!
These are good summer weight pants and the linen blend fabric doesn't wrinkle quite as much as pure linen. I'm able to wear these without ironing them, which is critically important to me because I HATE ironing. I'm 5'11' and 172 lbs., so I bought the Large Tall size. The legs are roomy, but that's okay. In the summer heat and humidity, I have no interest in wearing clingy, fitted pants. I have washed these once using cold water and hanging to dry. They did shrink a bit in length. Maybe an inch. Bummer. I have very long legs, so I was really hoping that they would not shrink.
I love these pants, but as a petite I thought the legs too wide. That's my only complaint.Other than that, love the colors, love the fit, and the fact that they're a linen blend they wrinkle a lot less than 100% linen.

Nice pants for summer wear
These pants fit nicely and are very comfortable and cool for summer wear. The color is true to shown, and washes well. My only *complaint* is they are linen and therefore wrinkle easily. If they are only slightly worn and not soiled, i simply iron them for the next time to get 2 wearings out of them. I ordered two pair. They will get a lot of use.
I found the legs of these pants to be too wide. I would have loved them if the legs weren't so wide. I had to return them for that reason. I was disappointed because I was hoping to take them on my vacation.
Pants run very big
Pants run very big. Had to return them. Fabric very nice
love these linen pants....the long length, the fit. classic and hard to find
I bought 3 pairs of these pants because they are comfortable. I love the drawstring waist because there is no elastic to be too tight or too loose. I got the black, beige and blue. They wash well in cool or lukewarm water and they iron well. I like that they have a nice "drape" to them.
Pants run 1 size too large. Have returned them for exchange for smaller size, but have not received them.
Love the pants, comfortable, and stylish. I will wear them while traveling this summer. Perfect pant, and perfect fit!
I love the loose fit, however the petite 30" length is overwhelming .28" would serve us better. I had all three pair of linen pants hemmed.

Cute and Comfy
Really sweet pink dots - great for spring and summer. I got the petite XL because I wanted them big. They are big - but not too, too. They are a good length - I am 5'3" and I wore them with 2-3" wedges. Perfect. Got lots of compliments. Great deal as well.
Look great, however
The pants run big. My usual size is 16, but they were so large and long so I exchanged them for a size 14, which is a perfect fit. The pants, along with the jacket, has a really classy look.

Great weight, great length, nice fit and great price at $29.99. Would buy more colors if I needed them. Perfect.
I purchase these and was quite amazed at the great fit. I am fuller through the thighs and these slacks give me a little extra room in the upper leg. This is important to me especially in the warmer weather......I don't want slacks to grab at me .
I ordered my usual size, but these pants were huge. I had to return.
These are great pants. I'm a solid size 12 Petite in pants and I ordered the PM. They fit perfect. You really need to look at the sizing chart to order the right fit. The only complaint I have is in the drawstring holes. I have a small waist and full hips, so I had the pull on the drawstring a little tighter and in doing so I pulled on the holes and they tore a bit. I love wide leg pants and these look great with a wedge heel sandal rather than with a flat shoe.
I love light beige linen pants and the sandshell is a pretty shade. But believe it when the reviews say these pants run very large. A large person could fit into the S size. Because nice linen pants are hard to find, I got out the sewing machine and took them in almost an inch on both sides. The drawstring makes an easy fit around the waist. I was very pleased with the overall fit after the alteration and got some compliments after wearing them.
Linen pants fit great
Due to previous reviews ordered size smaller and they fit fine!
Perfect!! I love them. I am ordering more...
This is exactly what I wanted, light , comfortable & attractive.
a little to shiny for me
I love the pants but they are a tad too fancy for me to wear to work, which is why I bought them.
Larger than normal
I ordered the tall based on your measurement scale. Great fit, a little too long, the cut is different than the ones I used to order yearly. But overall, I am satisified.
run large, but otherwise terrific
As many others have noted, these pants run VERY large. I would ordinarily wear a petite medium, so I got them in a petite small. They are still a slightly loose fit, but, for me, that's perfect. I got a pair in each color, except white. The blue is a sort of dusky periwinkle, which I just love. I've washed the black pair; they didn't shrink a bit, and the wrinkles fall right out if you dry them at a low to medium temperature and take them out of the dryer and hang them up immediately.
Perfect for the Summer
For those of us that are uncomfortable wearing shorts in the summer, this light weight fabric is perfect. The neutral colors compliment most colored shirts. The draw string adjusts to your waist size. I have purchased 10 of these pants in various colors.
Tall linen slacks
I have used these linen slacks in the past and they fit very well and for me, a tall lady, that's good news. I like them both and will get a lot of good out of them.
Laguna Woods, CA
MUCH TOO WIDE FROM WAIST TO HEM!!! Also the rise is too short and very uncomfortable. May work for a very tall and thin figure but not for a 14p. May take them to a dressmaker to taper the legs.
Pants are a Great Fit
I purchased these pants in olive stone and black and am very pleased with both. I am bottom heavy with a smaller waist and often find pants very hard to fit. These pants are a great fit for me, and I have enjoyed wearing them for work. They are comfortable and professional looking. I should probably order extra pairs for when these wear out!

Blue not as pictured
Run large, tall is extra long; blue is dull bluish-gray....Overall ok
Baton Rouge, Louisiana
I love these pants. At first I ordered two pairs in medium and they were too big. I now order size small and they fit perfectly. I have eight pair (including the two mediums) and as soon as new colors are offered I'll order more.
In a previous review I mentioned I would wash them to see if they shrink. They washed well,no shrinkage.I took them to resort in Mexico. They held up very well through several washings, and dryers. Did not need ironing which is a plus. They were very comfortable in the hot weather and I wore them to dinner and also casual. The only problem is the very BAGGY wide legs which on taller women may look better than on me who is petite.
Best casual pants ever
I bought these pants last year and immediately ordered more, plus a few more at sales time. Then I was delighted to see you're offering them again this year, so I bought several more. they are ALL I wear. They're linen so they can be worn dressy as well as totally casual. I think at this point I have about 15 pair! Oh wow, I think I see them on sale again...
Drawstring Linen Pants
I love these pants and have them in many colors. The blue is actually much lighter than it appears in the pictures but it's a beautiful color so I don't mind. I do wish they came in a mid-tall length. I wear a 33 1/2" length. The regulars are too short and the talls have to be hemmed. If I didn't have to hem them, they would be rated 5 stars
Not a good fit for me
i always wash and wear, and repeat before I review.These pants , well the legs are too, too WIDE. They feel uncomfortable like there slipping down no matter how I tie the drawstring. Disappointing!
Drawstring Linen Pant
Love these pants! They are definitely good for traveling and relaxing. These are easily my favorite pair of pants!
drawstring linen pant
I ordered two for a trip to a beach resort. The fabric feels nice, but the legs are VERY baggy , almost like palazzo pants.I will try to shrink them in wash to see what happens to size and fabric.I may also whip out my sewing machine to taper in the legs someas I do like linen pants which are very difficult to find. I will add to review after their wash.
These pants look awesome in the picture but when I received mine and tried them on, whoa! I looked like I was wearing a sack of potatoes! I wear a M & ordered a M. They were HUGE all over. They also have no shape to them. Makes your behind appear flat.
Always skeptical about linen because they tend to wrinkle so fast, but these do hold their shape and look good for an entire day. Comfortable, long enough and a lite iron does the trick! Great buy, wish they were available now.
Love Love Love this linen pant! A must for the Gulf Coast! Very long, good fabric, drawstring provides the perfect fit in the waist. I have ordered about 4 different colors!
